Is this something that happens too all th time and if yes, how do I get the root access back?

thanks a bunch
Go to Settings/About Phone/Build Number and tap until it unlocks Developer Options. Now, go into Developer options and enable Root access for "Apps and ADB." Ever since SuperUser was included in Settings, now this is the way to enable root on AOSP.

Or you could flash SuperSU in recovery when you flash the AOSP rom. I prefer to do this in addition to the above steps because I noticed some fickle behavior with certain root apps when I just use the built-in SU.

Thanks for the help slim. I knew about flashing supersu but I've never had many issues with root beyond flashing supersu in recovery. That fixed it each time for me at least

Always here to help my friend. When I started having issues with Titanium Backup uninstalling system apps, I found out that flashing SuperSU was my solution. Been mostly smooth sailing for the last several months.

thank you gentlemen, this morning I flashed the SuperSu and it worked. Got my root access back and I was able to finish everything.

On top of that, I also used Titanium to restore some of the apps with data and everything went smoothly.

The only thing that I did differently was NOT to restore sms/mms (did not really care about having them) and I used a backup of my contacts as an vcf data file that exported before i wiped and flashed a new ROM.

So the phone works like a champ now, it had been restarting for a month without a cause.
